The Ballad of Allyn-A-Dale
by: Danielle E. Shipley
Genre: Contemporary Fantasy
Enter Allyn-a-Dale. The grief of his father’s death still fresh and the doom of his own world looming, swirling realities leave the young minstrel marooned in an immortal Sherwood Forest, where he is recruited as a member of Robin Hood’s infamous outlaw band. But Allyn’s new life may reach its end before it’s scarcely begun. Their existence under threat, the Merry Men are called upon to embark on a journey to the dangerous world Outside – ours – on a quest which must be achieved without delay, or eternity in Avalon will not amount to very long at all.”
I didn't make it too, too far into The Ballad of Allyn-A-Dale because it was rather hard for me to follow. I don't know if it was the new twist on the fantasy genre, or the way it was written. It jumped back in time without really any explanation (that I found)....So I moved on to my next book.
It had a very...willowy feel to it...does that make sense? When I was reading, the words and how they flowed made me imagine a willowy, graceful woman dancing. It was really amazing how everything flowed and one sentence led to another.
The premise of the book was actually quite interesting, I just couldn't quite follow it. And the cover art is absolutely beautiful. Of course, the choice is up to you, dear reader, as to whether or not you'd like to read this book.
